    Hy everybody

    Let's try a concise explanation of my problem : :eek:
    PC, HP pavilion t329.fr, AMD 2600, ATI Radeon 9200 with TV output, hp TFT flat screen

    Before the problem :
    With no TV cable plugged in : blue HP screen at startup, then windows loading screen, then windows login.
    With TV cable plugged in : black screen with "input signal out of range".... then windows login.
    I could use my TV screen to watch movies for example .:)

    Now :
    With no TV cable plugged in : black screen with "input signal out of range".... then windows login. windows do not detect that my TV is not plugged in !!!
    With TV cable plugged in : black screen with "input signal out of range".... then windows login.
    I can NOT use my TV screen anymore.... :(
    I can not use UBUNTU LINUX Live CD for example because I don't see anything !!!!

    The problems are the following ones :
    1 - I can not use my TV output
    2 - I can not access the BIOS because of this black screen

    What I have tried ::confused:
    1 - reinstal the video drivers
    2 - reset of the BIOS of the motherboard (I took the battery out)
    3 - boot on a boot floppy -> black screen with my favorite "input signal out of range"

    Anyone help ???? I am really thinking my video card is dead and I might by a new one.... :eek:

    Mine boots fine with a TV plugged in (although it defaults all displays to PAL format because that's what set in the BIOS), so I don't think that could've done it...
